PhillyFilter: Please help me know what to expect when I drive to Memorial Hall/Fairmount Park in Philadelphia, from the south.

Tomorrow I'll be headed to a conference at Memorial Hall in Fairmount Park, scheduled for 9 AM-4 PM. Parking will be provided for a fee. It looks like I will be taking I-95 North to 676 West and then 76 West to Avenue of the Republic. I feel comfortable driving in suburbia and on freeways, but I have only driven in Philly once before. Apparently the area I'm visiting is not terribly easy to access with public transportation - let me know if I'm wrong!
How bad is traffic likely to be? How early should I leave to account for rush hour traffic? With normal traffic it would take an hour and 15 min.
